Later downgraded to a tropical storm, slow-moving Florence arrived over North and SC just after 7am local time on Friday, bringing torrential rain and severe floods.

Four deaths were confirmed by officials as United States media reported another.

Florence has been downgraded to a tropical storm by the National Hurricane Center (NHC) but authorities warned the danger was far from over, predicting that "life-threatening storm surges and strong winds" would persist through the night.

The southeastern coast of North Carolina and far northeastern portion of SC were expected to experience 20 to 25 inches of rain, but isolated areas could be hit with 30 to 40 inches, according to a National Hurricane Center advisory issued at 8 a.m. Friday.
